No bake peanut, marshmallow, white chocolate clusters are so easy and can be made in under 5 minutes. They are one of my ALL TIME favorite desserts.
Today, I am here to present an out of this world salty/sweet dessert and did I mention, it is no bake! Woohoo! Gotta love a no bake dessert that can be finished in under 5 minutes with 5 ingredients. These no bake peanut clusters are sure to be on everyone’s Christmas list.
My stepmom, Sharon, first introduced me to this dessert years ago. She thinks she might have found it in a Southern Living magazine but it is one of those recipes that has been in the family for a long time. I am a sucker for peanut butter and white chocolate together. The combination of these two along with the addition of peanuts, marshmallows, and rice krispies, oh goodness, it makes for the best little candy cluster you can imagine.
How to make No Bake Peanut Clusters
- Start by melting the white chocolate, I used almond bark, in the microwave or in a double boiler.
- Stir in peanut butter and then peanuts, cereal and marshmallows. Drop on wax paper to harden.
- This recipe makes around 40 clusters, keep some for you, and give away a few. 🙂 You may also half the recipe for the perfect amount for your family.
